Herbold: RPZ results for the West Seattle Junction
District 1 City Councilmember Lisa Herbold shared the results of the recent study regarding a Residential Parking Zone (RPZ) in the West Seattle Junction.
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has completed its study of a potential Residential Parking Zone (RPZ) in the area around commercial portion the West Seattle Junction. The request for the study came from the Junction Neighborhood Organization (JuNO).
The study found some areas met the criteria for an RPZ: 20 contiguous block faces (i.e. one side a block) that are 75% filled with vehicles, with 35% of the vehicles belong to non-residents.
Here’s a link to SDOT’s recent presentation and handout at JuNO, which includes the results of the study, and background information about RPZs. The RPZ study request came from JuNO.
Next steps include additional community outreach before developing a proposal, and a public hearing to consider it. Information about Residential Parking Zones is available here; here’s information about the parking study for commercial areas in the West Seattle Junction.
